The Reds are believed to have lowered the midfielder’s price and are willing to accept bids in the range of £ 30m for his signature.
to me Football from the insideThere is a growing concern at Liverpool that Naby Keita will not be able to live up to the expectations that came with him when he joined Merseyside from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2018.
Naby Keita helped Liverpool win the UEFA Champions League and Premier League title for the first time ever during his three years at the club.
However, his progress in Liverpool was hampered by a number of injuries. He has only managed 76 games in all competitions for Liverpool since joining the club.
Despite having put in a number of great performances this season, Naby Keita has fallen behind with Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp preferred to play with Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Gergenio Vinaldom, James Milner and Curtis Jones before the former RB Leipzig player.
Leicester is said to be keen to give Naby Keita a second chance in English football. Brendan Rodgers is said to be a huge fan of the Liverpool midfielder.
The Foxes are currently in a prime position to finish the season in the top four. They are third in the Premier League table, four points behind West Ham United, fourth-placed.
Brendan Rodgers’ men have been one of the most admired teams in the Premier League this season. However, the team still lacked strength and depth. This prompted the club to tackle the summer transfer problem.
Liverpool Naby may sell Keita to Leicester City to raise money for new signings
Liverpool suffered a bad campaign in the 2020-21 season. The Reds currently occupy seventh place in the Premier League table and were knocked out of the FA Cup and FA Cup early in the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are also at risk of being eliminated from the Champions League after losing 3-1 in the first leg of the quarter-final with Real Madrid.
German Tactic will look to renew its squad in the summer, but it will first need to abandon some marginalized players in order to raise money. Naby Keita might be one of the players to be sold.
